Study Abroad Japan: Finding a Japanese Address in English

Ever tried to find an address in Japan?

Can't read Japanese characters?

Can't read a Japanese map?

Don't worry help is at hand.

Japanese addresses are well difficult, a mix of when the building was built and finding a buildings rank in a zone. Japanese buildings don't have their own number.

A nifty tool that can help you through the maze is at hand

Shane at a Typical Life has found a great tool to help called Diddlefinger

It takes a little while to get use to so be patient as you learn but it will save you much time in the long run.
